My trip to Haridwar.

Haridwar - one of the 12 sacred cities of India located on the banks of the Ganges in the state of Uttarakhand.
In Sanskrit, the word Haridwar means "gate of God", Haridwar is indeed the gateway to the Himalayas, the abode of Hindu Gods and location of the Himalayan shrines

Haridwar is one of the most revered pilgrimage sites in India, because here once in 12 years held the largest Hindu festival of Kumbh Mela.

Here, the Ganges, collect turbulent tributaries flowing down from the Himalayan glaciers, goes to the plains and moderates its course.

Pilgrimage to the Himalayas for practicing Hindus begins with a visit to the city of Haridwar, which, as pointed out, even in its title, is the "door", "gate" to God.

Pilgrims have to take bath in the Ganges. However, to do so is not easy. You can break the fast-flowing Ganges.

Great pictures; I guess those monkeys must be considered sacred?

Yes, they are troublesome and somewhat thuggish creatures, aren't they?
